\\ Carte Postale
The three composers commissioned for the Carte Postale Project used the theme of postcards as an inspirational focus for their works. In keeping with this theme, Stephen Menotti arranged the Funf Orchesterlieder Op. 4 (1912) by Alban Berg for the quintet. The texts to these songs are taken from poems that Peter Altenberg wrote on postcards.
This program was premiered in March 2012 and toured internationally at the following venues:
